Do Romances Featuring Heroines In Their Forties Sell Well?
Beverly Havlir (EC author) is thinking of writing a May/December romance, with the heroine being older than the hero. The thing is, she’s not sure what constitutes an older woman, or what sort of age gap would work.
"Seriously, will a story about a fortyish woman in love with a younger man sell? Hmmm..."
Personally, I like younger man, older woman stories, but I’m not sure how well heroines in their forties are received in Romanceland. I’d say, make the woman 38, and the guy 28. I think ten years is enough of a gap.
What do you guys think? If you have an opinion on this, pop over to Bev’s blog and let her know what you think.
